Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

The hitch arrived on time and in good shape. The install wasn't quite as easy as anticipated. The biggest issue was that the front air dam on my 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500 is pretty low and it limited my ability to move around under the truck. I could have put it up on blocks, but I decided to just deal with the limited space. The cutout of the front fascia was pretty straight forward. Once that was done, I used a floor jack to get the hitch up in place. It was difficult to line up the front holes on the hitch with those in the frame. After much up/down & back/forth I was able to get the original bolts through. The back holes were much easier at that point. One thing that would have been nice to include would have been a wire pig tail to pull the back bolts through the cutout in the frame. Fortunately I had one left over from another project and it made getting the back bolts through a breeze. Before torqueing the nuts down I noticed the hitch did not line up perpendicularly. It is slightly tilted to the rear. I took out as much of the tilt as possible before torqueing the nuts down. I don’t think the tilt will be an issue as I’m going to use the hitch to mount a Yakima Dry Dock for my kayaks, but Draw-tite should take another look at their specs and see if any changes are in order. The attached picture gives you a veiw of the tilt. I used the Curt license plate holder for my front plate since the fascia cutout was in the location where the plate used to reside. 67098


JimM commented on 0220/2013 his Draw-Tite 65056 did not align perpendicularly to his truck upon installation. Has Draw-Tite resolved this mis-alignment issue? Also, does Draw-Tite include wire pigtails to fish the rear bolts through the bracket after the hitch is positioned?I want to purchase this hitch and install on my 2012 Silverado 2500HD but do not want the mis-alignment issues referenced by JimM.Thank you, Kelvin

Jims review is the only time we have heard of this, seemingly an isolated incident. Of course if you have ordered one that has a fit issue, please give us a call so we can help correct it. Draw-Tite does not include the fish-wires on this application. Since the hitch has to be in position before the hardware goes into the frame, a fish-wire would be of limited help though some would prefer. We do have them available individually, in this case, 1/2 inch bolts, 80101-1.

How far out does it stick through the plastic?

Delivered by UPS in flawless condition. FedEx has damaged everything I've order thus far and was glad to see a UPS truck for a change. Packaged by etrailer logo outside to withstand practically anything. I removed this very heavy front end hitch with a thick smooth paint job, hardware accounted for and attachment boxed separately so as not to strike the product. As for the quality of this hitch, exceptional! Built tough for a GMC Sierra 2500HD, 4x4 that will see strong duty up to 9000 lbs of wenching as designed. Impressive item, excellent construction, outstanding packaging is proof that etrailer value their customers. Thanks. 29518

Good fit, straight forward instillation. Some difficulty putting in the bolts that were included. I had to use a magnet to get the washer on and start the nut on the bolt, its a tight fit and I had trouble fitting my fingers into the frame opening. It was noted in another review and I agree, the hitch has an upward pitch to it, its not a big deal, but it might bother someone who is fussy about such things. I looked at some of the other manufacturers and this appeared to have the most ground clearance. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the trouble with the bolts and the pitch of the hitch. 284257

Purchased this item for my 2011 2500 HD Silverado. With hitch receiver in place 2" receiver is tilted back out of level tremendously. 2" receiver doesn't protrude past bumper fascia enough to even get pin through bar. Hole is behind plastic fascia. Already had a brush guard in place and had to widen front mount by 1/2" to accommodate existing brackets. Don't know how this product is advertised to fit my model truck its unleveled and short after installation. 108521

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?

  • Availability of Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2015 GMC 2500
  • We sure do! The Draw-Tite # 65068 and the Curt # C31071 front mount receivers are a fit for your 2015 Sierra 2500. The Draw-Tite model isn't a fit for Denali models, and will require you trim the fascia where the front license plate is located in order for the receiver tube to pass through the fascia (see diagram.) If you live in a state where a front plate is required, you'll need a # 5443 front plate relocation bracket. The Curt model will install with the receiver tube exiting below...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • For a similar front hitch that I can show you how far it will stick out in font of your bumper, which will let you see how easily it would be to pin, check out the Curt Front Hitch part # C31023. I attached a couple pics as well to show you what it will look like once installed. I also attached installation instructions and an install video. Most likely the Draw Tite Hitch # 65056 that you referenced would be pretty easy to pin as well, but since we have not had the chance to install...

  • The Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch # 65056 for your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will have a significant advantage in terms of ground clearance compared to Curt hitch # C31023. The Curt hitch receiver will be directly beneath the front fascia on the truck, see picture. The Draw-Tite hitch receiver will exit right about at the middle of the front license plate location, see drawing. The Draw-Tite hitch does require fascia trimming and you will need to relocate the front license plate,...

  • The front fascia trimming that is required to install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, # 65056, on your 2011 Chevrolet 3500 is detailed in the installation instructions that I have linked for you. Basically, you will need to drill a square hole that is 3-1/4 inches by 3-1/4 inches. To begin measuring for the cutout, you will want to measure from the tow hook bolt center to the ground. Next, subtract 4-1/8 inches from that measurement, this will be the distance from the ground to the...

I have included a link to the installation instructions for this hitch as well.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2014 GMC Sierra SLE
  • For your 2014 GMC Sierra 2500 you would be best served by getting the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65056. This hitch will give you additional ground clearance as the hitch opening will come out where the license plate normally installs, whereas the Curt Hitch part # C31023 that you referenced hangs below the bumper. I attached installation instructions for you to check out as well.

We offer winch mounts like part # C31010 that can be connected to the vehicle via a front receiver like part # 65052 for a 1500 series or # 65056 for a 2500 or 3500 series, or a brush guard. The winch can be mounted directly to a trailer as well, but if the winch is mounted independently of the vehicle or the trailer, it will be up to you to devise a mount and rig...

  • Low Hanging Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • You can use a high low adapter like part # RM-048-8 to lower the hitch opening but you should note that it will lower the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. I attached a picture of the Curt Hitch part # C31023 installed and you can see it sits a bit closer to the ground. This might be your best option since it wouldn't require the use of the high low adapter.

  • Carrying 2 Bikes While Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 Short Bed
  • I have some options for you but the ladder rack and half roof rack method will have several issues. Chief among them is possible reduce turning clearance while towing the 5th wheel (and with a short bed clearance is very important) and there is the compatibility issue with the ladder rack crossbar and a roof bike rack. The best solution is to install a roof rack on your 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 so that you can utilize roof mount bike racks and not have clearance or compatibility issues....
